Before I start this piece I should say that I have absolutely no issue with fat people. If someone enjoys their food and is happy carrying around a few extra pounds then good on them, go for it....reach for another pie and enjoy! My issue is the elevation of being overweight into being something that … Continue reading #ItsNotOkayToBeFat
You won’t understand the grace, power and beauty of your youth until many years after it has gone. You’ll fail at some things and consider it failure and not a natural learning process. You’ll betray those you love, whether by thought or word or deed. You’ll forget how blessed you are, focusing only on the … Continue reading The Human Condition
In 2018, Republicans (AND Democrats) voted to cut $23 billion dollars from the budget for food stamps (42 million Americans currently receive them). Fast forward to 21 December 2019 and Donald Trump signed off on a US defense budget of a mind boggling $738 billion dollars.

If you sway towards the bigot’s point of view then you’d conclude that there is absolutely no point towards homosexuals at all: … Continue reading Humanity Owes it Existence to Homosexuals
If you don't know, learn. If you do know, teach. If you break something, fix it. If you make a mess, clear it up. If you're shown kindness, show kindness. If you're wealthy, give back. If you have a talent, use it. If you doubt, investigate. If someone tells you what to think, decide for … Continue reading Some New Year Thoughts…
Here's two pictures (and two tales and two cities) for you. The first is from the recent UK election. That election campaign briefly came alight when this picture was published - it's of a four year old boy being treated for suspected pneumonia on the floor of the hospital because no beds were available. … Continue reading A Tale of Two Cities
Here’s to boys who like boys, girls who like girls and men who like to wear dresses. Here’s to the woman who doesn’t want to look like an anorexic stick insect from some vile fashion magazine and who knows she is the equal of any man. Here’s to those who don’t have any interest in … Continue reading Here’s to the Freaks; here’s to the future!
Life…is a random, cacophonous noise full of screaming and shouting and things that glitter and shine but turn out to be not what they seem. In all that distracting, attention-seeking noise there is only one indisputable constant: Love. For only Love has true and enduring value. Success and wealth are fabulous, but they … Continue reading Love is all, the rest ain’t worth a damn…
